  • This Saturday the Alpha Sigma sorority will be hosting an “Easter Egg-stravaganza” and youngsters from all over the region are invited to attend.
    Maari Hanson said the idea originated quite some time ago and this year they are joining forces with other sororities to hold the event.
    Activities will include an Easter egg hunt, face painting, cupcake walk and an egg race. The event is geared for children aged 1-10.
    “We have three age categories for the egg hunt,” Hanson said. “We should have close to 3,000 eggs.”
    She said some of the eggs contain candy and others award prizes. Hanson said the egg will hold a number and the child can go to the “prize table” and collect their corresponding item.
    “We have a lot of community sponsors,” Hanson added, “It should be lots of fun.”
    The Easter Bunny will also be making an appearance, so families are encouraged to bring their cameras.
    The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Burdick Arena in Devils Lake. It is free and open to the public.
    Hanson said a lot of work has gone into planning the festivities, but she hopes that such an event will keep people close to home for the holiday weekend.
    “A lot of families go to the Alerus Center,” she said, “we wanted to keep our families in town.”
    Hanson said the event is not only for children who live in the city — and she is hoping for a huge turnout.
    “It's free and open for the whole Lake Region area,” she said. “We'd love to see people from area towns, not just Devils Lake. The more the merrier!”
    At the conclusion of the event an “egg drop” will be held, where parents and children can return any unwanted plastic eggs. They are not required to do so, but if the family does not want the eggs, they will be saved for next year's event.
    “Hopefully we'll be able to get a few of them back,” Hanson said.
